Newly elected senators and eBoard members were asked what they hope to accomplish as elected officials and representatives of the student body. SGA President Matty Bennet also shared his remarks about the new members and their goals for the year.
What I hope to accomplish: I understand the value of clubs. I led a club in high school, so I want to make sure they have what they need.
Position: Publicist and Recruitment Coordinator for SGA – Former Student Trustee
What I hope to accomplish: A lot of people aren’t really in tune with what we actually do here, and I just want to get the word out – especially over helping other clubs.
What I hope to accomplish: I hope to bring the community together and make people aware of the good things about our school and how we can help each other succeed.
What I hope to accomplish: I hope to bring awareness to people about how things are handled on campus and be the voice for those who aren’t as informed.
What I hope to accomplish: SGA obviously has power to speak and represent the students on campus, and I feel like they need more of a diverse say.
What I hope to accomplish: I hope I can be someone to whom students can voice their concerns, so I can express them to SGA.
